You can find a lot of font information on my website here.

The font used for the articles is Walbaum Fraktur SH.
I wasn't going to get involved with the font used in the props in the Fantastic Beasts movies, I'm kinda burned out, but Oliver of Walden Fonts contacted me and asked me to list his fonts on my site. They at least are verified. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I am very familiar with your site. Definitely a great resource! I would say though, post fonts etc. in the HP Font Database thread.
Also as for some of the FB fonts you posted there - they are actually scanned from old typeface books. They really did not use a lot of digital typefaces on the new films.

According to this article in Design Week: The props are made through a mix of hand-crafted and digital means, some posters were screen-printed, some lettering was scanned from archival books, then copied and pasted together to create words, while others, like newspapers and labels, were created digitally, printed and then photocopied to give the appearance of rough edges.

The entire set is on my to-do list and I have some HQ references. I just have some more important props to work on right now. But once I'm done I'll do these.

awesome!

as I couldnt make these as good as I wanted I made my own designs (custom not official) . will load them up once I finished them all

Does anyone know if there are more photos available of this prop?

I haven't spotted the prop in Crimes of Grindelwald, but I guess they were replaced by owls later in production.

I've been researching some book covers these days and I came across this image, (from what I saw it was the book used by Dumbledore when teaching DADA). Unfortunately I did not find a better resolution, but if someone has and wants to share, I would be very happy.
